One Month To Live

I received One Month To Live from WaterBrook Press in order to review. This life changing book was written by Kerry & Chris Shook who minister in Texas. The chapters in this book are just daily readings from day 1 to day 30. The sections are "Live Passionately", "Love Completely", "Learn Humbly" and "Leave Boldly". Although I have not read this entire book, what I have read so far has caused me to think. What would I do differently if I only had one month to live? Not things to fulfill my selfish desires, but things to do for God's Kingdom. Would I do more at church? Would I call people more often and tell them that I love them? Would I create more cards, something I love to do? Or make decorative tiles (another craft I love to do)? What legacy would I leave behind?

Well, I may or may not have 30 days left on this earth, but what I do know is that is is time to start LIVING. Living for Jesus. Telling others about His love. Not being afraid to take that step forward. God will give me the words to say to His people, His creation. I should not be afraid to step out boldly for His glory.

You know, on your tombstone - it will show your beginning and  your ending with a dash between the two. You know what I'm referring to right? Well, now, I am LIVING "the dash". I encourage you to pick up this book and start living!

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation was received or expected.
